NFL Odds: Packers to Start Hundley Versus Saints. The Green Bay Packers (4-2 SU, 3-3 ATS) just saw their Super Bowl LII odds take a tumble. QB Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone last week, so Brett Hundley will be under center this Sunday when Green Bay hosts the New Orleans Saints (3-2 SU and ATS), kicking off at 1 PM ET on FOX. The Packers are 6-point home dogs at press time, holding steady since the open.
Heading into Week 6, the Packers were +500 second favourites on the Super Bowl futures market, but they’ve fallen all the way to +2000 now that Rodgers is expected to go under the knife. Hundley was Green Bay’s fifth-round pick in 2015, and a quality dual-threat quarterback at UCLA. He tossed three interceptions in relief of Rodgers during last week’s 23-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings (+3.5 at home at Bovada).
The Saints, meanwhile, are above .500 for the first time since 2013 after winning three straight games straight up and against the spread. Their defense leaves much to be desired, but most of their issues have been against the run. New Orleans had a pair of pick-sixes in last week’s 52-38 win over the Detroit Lions to cash in as 5-point home favorites.
